Posted on 06/27/2020 2:03:12 PM PDT by Rusty0604
Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have released an open letter warning the Israeli government against applying sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria region. The letter addressed to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and senior members of his government was endorsed by 191 out of 233 House Democrats. None of the 197 Republicans in the House supported the move.
[W]e express our deep concern with the stated intention to move ahead with any unilateral annexation of West Bank territory, and we urge your government to reconsider plans to do so, the House Democrats wrote, referring to Prime Minister Netanyahus proposed plan to apply Israeli law to Judea and Samaria, an area which Israel acquired in the defensive war of 1967.
Addressed to Netanyahu, Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi, the letter implores Jerusalem to halt its plan, saying it would erode the possibility of a two-state solution and damage Israels ties with America.
Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden also opposes the proposed Israeli measure which complies with the Trump Peace Plan. I do not support annexation, Biden said on May 19, referring to Israeli sovereignty plan. He also vowed to undo the measures taken by President Trump. Im going to reverse Trump administration steps which I think significantly undercut the prospects of peace, he added. This includes moving the U.S. embassy out of Jerusalem, media reports said.
By opposing Israels right to extend sovereignty, the House Democrats have firmly positioned themselves in line with the United Nations, the European Union, and the Arab League.

Meh to democrats.
Jew Lives Matter.
Have the Judean Peoples Front weighed in yet?
If the Dem’s win the WH you can bet they’ll pull our embassy out of Jerusalem; Dem’s are Israel haters.
Joe Biden is going to move the embassy out of Jerusalem.
He definitely will.
“Dems are Israel haters.”
Dems are the haters...period.
Israel specifically; America generally.
Its an interesting exercise to look at Israel and her neighbors in Google Earth. Night and Day.
It seems to me most Democrats in Congre$$ have enlisted into the Army of Satan.
Dems hate Jews and Christians. They seem to be ok with Muslims, though. Enemy of my enemy kinda thing.
Roosevelt had no problem letting them be slaughtered. It’s a democrat thing.
I’ll have to try that.
And this comes from a bunch of Anti-American, Anti-Israel POS’s in Congress, both the House and the Senate!!
Dems will also remove ALL funding to Israel, Dems dont even consider Israel a country..they want Jews out of Israel and Palestinians to get all of the land..BLM associates themselves with Jew haters
I don’t recall reading about mosques being closed because of CV.
Amazing how many Jews support Democrats. It is also amazing the patience Israel has. I would have pushed it’s enemies into the sea long ago.
Or else what? Israel will announce their annexations this summer. And assuming Trump is reelected then there will be more annexations to come.
Just have someone who is sympathetic to Palestinians to name just one Palestinian king or government. That area has been ruled by other countries namely the Ottoman Empire when Rome fell until the Brits kicked them out in 1917 and was then ruled by them. There are no such people as Palestinians.
